I would like to know why the village office was not open on July 3, 2006. The deadline should of been changed to July 5, 2006 when the office was open, People do not like to leave cash or checks in the drop box. I am referring to a couple who are in their eighties and have been in bad health, They tried to get it in on the 3rd but had to do it the 5th and got charged the 5% late fee. They would of paid sooner but were in the hospital. I think that is very low and your system needs to be changed, the date payment is due there should be a person working.
